Nick Cannon has opened up about Mariah Carey's opinion on how many children he has.

Most parents stop after one or two, or maybe three or four - anymore and you run the risk of having to get a van opposed to a normal, often more stylish five-seater car.

However, Nick Cannon is building his way to a whole coach load, having fathered a whopping total of 12 children so far - who knows how long he'll keep going for or whether he's finally finished sowing his seed.

He shares two of his kids with 'All I Want for Christmas Is You' singer Mariah Carey, but how does Carey feel about his 10 other kids?

Carey and Cannon tied the knot in 2008 and three years later welcomed their twins, Monroe and Moroccan, now 12 years old.

The pair chose to divorce in 2014 after six years of marriage, but have returned to being friends since.

"Imagine if, like, Trump and Putin had to live in the same house," Cannon explained on The Jason Lee Show podcast. "It wasn't even about her and I, we've always been good. It was more about us understanding that instead of making it about our relationship and what I want or what you want, we should just do what's best for the children."

However, with Cannon having to do what's best for all his 12 children, what does Carey think of it all?

Cannon explained that Carey simply focuses on checking he's handling fatherhood to 12 okay.

He said: "She high frequency, man. She always asks me, 'You aight? You good? How you doing? You handling it all?'"

And despite 12 being a lot of other children to keep track of, Carey doesn't seem phased at all by Cannon's increasing brood.

"She's like, as long as you don't bring none of that bulls**t to the Manor of Carey. Like, she lives in her own world, nothing can infiltrate that stuff. When we talk daily, she's just checking on my spirit," Cannon added.

Cannon also opened up on the podcast about whether he's planning on continuing to expand his group of children even further anytime soon.

Rumors have been swirling around a possible thirteenth child after Cannon shared a cryptic message on social media.

However, he clarified: "Twelve is a righteous number. I'm gonna stay there."

Which sounds like a sensible decision considering Cannon recently forgot one of his 12 children when challenged to recite all their names.
